Bye, Maine

We began our last full day in Maine with eggs, fruit salad, and pancakes with homemade applesauce and maple syrup from Vermont (courtesy of MB).
IMG_1156 IMG_1157 IMG_1158 Then we strolled into town for the weekly farmer’s market behind the local high school. There wasn’t much point in buying any of the lovely produce, cheese, and breads with only one day left, but we did enjoy this blueberry pastry. IMG_1161 IMG_1164Back at home, Anna and I took these very casual, completely not staged or planned photos:
IMG_1172 IMG_1174Can you blame us though? The views are something else. 
IMG_1176 IMG_1182 IMG_1197 IMG_1199By the afternoon, it was finally time for bookclub! I hastily made name tags for everyone. Anna begrudgingly let me place one on her. And guess what? Everyone remembered everyone’s name! Then we cuddled up on the couches with coffee and cookies to discuss, “The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace.” 
IMG_1203We actually stuck to talking about the book. No gossiping for this studious club! We enjoyed it so much that we’re already planning on repeating it for our next trip. Though next time, the book will be more relevant to the location that we visit. IMG_1204 IMG_1207Then Dad watched the Notre Dame game. He made sure to sit extra close to the TV because they always do better when he devotes this level of commitment. It’s like how he stays wide awake on airplanes so that his alertness will keep the plane afloat. IMG_1209After bookclub, Mary Beth and I were a little stir crazy so we went out for a final walk along the highway. IMG_1210 See how authentic Stonington is?IMG_1213 IMG_1216 IMG_1221 IMG_1222 On our way back, we ran into our cat friend. She was despondent when she realized it was our last day in town. IMG_1228 IMG_1231 IMG_1232 IMG_1233 As we made our way back into town we got the courage to walk out on the pier where all the manly lobstermen were loading up trucks with the day’s catch. IMG_1236 IMG_1239Goodbye, Maine. Thanks for all the adventures!

  1. It is not goodbye, Maine but rather, “So long until next year Maine”
